The LOC code merely means the control responded and locked the door. You'll find a tech sheet under the top panel of the machine to help guide you thru the diagnostic process, which is fairly involved.

LOC means it thinks the control panel is locked. This gives the ERR indication when you push the buttons. To unlock it you need to hold down the Options and Select buttons together until it reacts.

I know this may seem silly but - On the top right back corner of your washer hit it with medium force with your fist, this helps.

Kenmore washer model44082 will not work. It flashed err and LOC. I have unplugged and tried to cancel.it still flashes err and then LOC.


Hello

LOC error code is displayed when the control panel is locked, to unlock it press the OPTION & SELECT button and hold them for 20 seconds. This should reset the control, if it does not then replacing the control is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Frigidaire front load, ERR LOC, washer won't run


Just had same problem. After removing boot/rubber gasket around opening, and replacing door lock assembly it still would not work giving the same ERR LOC message! Another site directed me to press the "Options" and "Select" buttons at the same time. BINGO! My husband was quite proud of me!

Kenmore Front Loader stuck in "LOC" and every button produces "ERR"


Look for the 2 buttons on your that have a lock symbol.  Pushing & hold both for 3 seconds.  This toggles the child proof mode.
